David is right. people bash wrestling like is not a sport but fuck people dont know how hard people work its a sport. Fuck you timmy Wrstling is an americen past time. It has been around for decades and will be around for ever.
Totally. Sport is an activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively. Wrestling is more like a play, where people rehearse their movements and lines and then perform it to an audience.
I’ve always thought the people who defend wrestling as a sport and attack it as “fake” are being equally ludicrous.
Wrestling doesn’t claim to be a sport. It doesn’t claim to be real. It’s entertainment. Perhaps more accuratley, it’s equal parts athletics and theatre, and this is coming from someone who has been involved in it. What wrestlers put their bodies through every night of the week IS more intense and does more damage than what most “athletes” go through. That’s not to say that wrestling is good and sports are bad, because it usually means that a majority of wrestlers end up dead or crippled before they reach fifty. I won’t even get into the lack of unions or health insurance.
So no, it’s not a sport, but it’s also not fake – it’s staged. Let’s just say it is what it is. Can’t we all just get along?
Besides, no one has believed it was real since your grandparents were born. The organizations themselves admit that it’s fixed, but behave as if it’s real for the sake of suspending disbelief. For instance, you don’t believe the show “House” is real, do you? Wouldn’t it get annoying if someone thought they were letting you in on a big secret by saying, “I bet they’re not even using real medicine.”
How do you want me to back it up? About the only thing that I can do on the internet is make my name “Ronald Blows” and make fun of you for being a douche. Just like the only thing you can do is type in all caps. And you can’t fight me through the internet, ass.
I used to be a gigantic fan of WWE (I kinda fell off after suffering through the whole ECW/WCW alliance thing)and I would agree that the amount of work wrestlers put into it is vastly underappreciated by those who aren’t into it but seriously, if you can’t have a sense of humor about it, you’re kinda missing the point. I always have viewed professional wrestling in the same manner as I have my love of corny 80′s slasher movies- if you go in expecting Oscar caliber performances you’ll hate it but if you can enjoy it for what it is, it’s damn entertaining. It’s crazy, over-the-top entertainment and should be enjoyed as such.
Take it easy on Jeff. The best part of Jeff ran down the crack of his Mom’s ass just seconds before he was conceived. You can’t win ‘em all.
That Ronald character though, he is just a window-licking panty waste. Probably from somewhere in the Tennessee Valley Divide region of Appalachia or lower Alabama. Symptoms indicative of alcohol poisoning as a fetus, exposure to lead based paint as an infant, heavy inhalant abuse during the formative years and severe frontal lobe damage from repeated mild traumatic brain injuries. He is a true oxygen thief and will be until the Patron Saint of Charles Darwin culls him from our herd.
Well Ronnie, its been fun making fun of you. I’m gonna go because I’m about to get off work. Always remember, you’re a faggot, most people that dont watch wrestling would kick your ass, and you still blow.
Well wrestling clearly is not a sport, the WWE as an organization even admits that by calling itself “sports entertainment.” It can’t be a sport without real competition, you can’t have real competition if the matches are (more or less) scripted and the outcomes are always known.
You are the only people that have gotten it right with the facts about wrestling! Yes, it’s staged, but it’s really one of those sports entertainment shows that, unless you’re a fan, you don’t know what kind of hell they put their body through. No, it’s not always healthy & for the right reasons (steroids, drugs, addiction, etc.), but that doesn’t change the fact that wrestlers probably do more damage to their body, mind and lifespan than any other athlete – not to mention the isolation, considering most are on the road 340 days of the year. I’m not saying that wrestlers make good choices. At all, lol. But that doesn’t change the intensity of the sport…entertainment.
And I don’t blame people for thinking that it would be more like acting, with staged moves and therefore minimal pain. I didn’t realize how intense it was until I started actually getting into it, lol.
On another note, Jeff MUST have an IQ of about 50 to believe that WWE is real… I didn’t think people like that (“marks”) still existed, LMAO!
This first one does not deserve to be on this site at all. Its lyrics from Jerry Jeff Walker’s song ‘Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother’. Its not even a ‘dumb hillbilly’ song either, it rails against the mothers who breed children who are ‘…thirty-four and drinking in a honky tonk/Just kicking hippies asses and raising hell.’ Jerry Jeff Walker is a New Yorker who was originally a folk artist- and he penned a song you might have heard of: ‘Mr Bojangles’.
It would be nice if Lamebook did a simple good search before posting up these statuses.
Yes, boxing is a real sport, you’re right. That doesn’t change the intensity of wrestling, lol. I actually research the things I’m interested in, and therefore know what happens behind-the-scenes. And when they are milking something just for the show, I know. And when they’ve physically critically injured themselves in real life, I know. I’m not just speaking out of ignorance, or else I wouldn’t comment in the first place. I promise =)
I wonder if that Jeff dude is really Vince McMahon in disguise. Anyway, with all that pent up anger inside of him Jeff should try for the WWE, I have the perfect name for him: Angry Redneck or Meryl Streep cause we all know they’re just acting. Dumbasses!
i feel the same way as jeff. fuck south park. i mean it was fine with the anti-semitism and anti-just-about-every-religion-in-the-world and the racism and the takin the piss out of dead people, but when they took the piss out of WWE, they fucking crossed the line. im so emotional right now im about to cry, but maybe thats just me on my period
I don’t get why people who like wrestling get so annoyed when other people say it’s not real. Why do you care?
“You realise it’s all fake, right?”
“Actually yes, that’s the point, dumbass.”
“The point is that it’s fake?”
“Yeah! It’s very physically demanding and takes lots of effort and training.”
“But you could say that about anything, like the Third Reich.”
“Godwin’s Law, fucko. You lose.”
“Shit. You got me.”
*I* don’t get why people don’t see the difference between GRECO-ROMAN WRESTLING (which IS a sport) and WWE WRESTLING (which is not).
It’s like a guy believing that Rocky was a documentary and when you explain that it was a MOVIE in which Sylvester Stallone was ACTING, he screams “BOXING IS A REAL SPORT! YOU’RE JUST BEING STUPID!!!” and then collapses into the foetal position and sobs like a six year old girl who accidentally let go of her helium balloon in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
Oh no, south park made fun of somebody and made them upset. since that happened, it will probably take south park off the air. God forbid they offend somebody because they definitely don’t make fun of everybody. Those meanies…
Geonardo, you’re right. I stand (sit? lol) corrected: We’re debating whether wrestling is a sport or sports entertainment. Wrestling IS a professional sport (just look at Mexican or Japanese wrestling!!). WWE, on the other hand, is sports entertainment. Lol.
Coincidentally, that South Park episode is on right now, and it’s effing HILARIOUS!
And “Boz”, I think people get annoyed because those that don’t know what goes on behind-the-scenes and claim to know, are ignorant. It’s frustrating to talk to someone who doesn’t care, or know a whole lot about the sport and try to tell them what it’s like. From what you/fake you says, it’s like if I tried to educate you on Ireland although I’ve never been there, am not Irish, etc. and trying to be right, when you’re the one that would generally be more educated than I.
“Boz”, if you want to try to understand what most wrestlers put their body through, do some research on Stu Hart’s “Dungeon”. Most of the successful wrestlers that actually survived through it (Bret & Owen – Stu’s sons, Chris Benoit, Jushin Liger, etc.), they are considered among the “elite”. Then get back to me =)
PS. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not proud of my nerdy love of wrestling. Lol.
The South Park episode took the piss out of Olympic wrestling just as much, if not more than, WWE. They said waht lots of people think, it may be real but it looks gay and proffesional wrestling, as fake as it is, is still more credible to watch.
Man, that guy sure is passionate. And then about WWE wrestling. That’s just funny. I never watch South Park, but now I want to watch that one show. I’ve heard the one bashing World of Warcraft is supposed to be good stuff too, so might check that out as well.
I have to admit that I kind of like watching WWE every now and then. Guys like Rey Mysterio, John Morrison and Evan Bourne are capable of pulling off some amazing stunts, so I can watch a few shows and appreciate their talent.
One of the main problems concerning WWE these days is that it has been lowered to your American PG-13 rating, so they have this little stupid dwarf running around trying to be funny. And he’s not. He’s about as funny as an Uwe Boll-movie (if you don’t know this guy, then look him up on imdb and check the ratings of this terrible movie adaptations)… WWE is funny, but it’s no sport. It’s entertainment. And don’t take it seriously. In fact, if you love something dearly, you should appreciate people noticing it, even if it is to mock it.
@ Robert – not to mention that they can’t show blood anymore because of the PG-13 rating! So now, when it happens (which, BTW, is VERY real, lol), you’ll notice the camera switch to black & white. Do you know why that is? Because Vinnie’s wife Linda is wanting to run for senate in Connecticut. They don’t even show blood on PAID PPVs anymore! Gotta keep that squeaky clean image…apparently steroids aren’t a big deal, but blood is =P
By the way, to innocent bystanders, I really am truly sorry for knowing so much useless crap about wrestling. It’s the boyfriend’s fault.
If you’re the type to get easily offended then don’t watch South Park. You Will be made fun of. Every religion, every race, and plenty more are made fun of. That’s why people(like chef’s VA) are hypocrites. They have no problems when everyone else is being made fun of, but can’t take it when it’s their turn.
Actual wrestling is a sport, but WWE is not. The dudes on WWE are undoubtedly all good wrestlers(like Kurt Angel). I have no doubt that if they were serious then they could beat the crap out of most people.
LOL@ Ronald using Wikipedia to prove that WWE is real when the first paragraph says this: Professional wrestling, or pro wrestling, is an athletic performing art where matches are prearranged by the promotion’s booking staff. It is a non-competitive sport which contains strong elements of theatre, mock combat, and catch wrestling.
Not to mention, Wikipedia cannot always be trusted because it can be edited by nimrods like Ronald.
Dude, I Like WWE too… But it’s not like the WWE/WWF as it was… But I still like WWE because of The Undertaker and Triple H… Randy Orton, Batista, Rey Mysterio, John Cena, Kane are not like how they were anymore… And the worse… they made Kane a dummy! They moreover made it like a Common Business… So, I watch past WWE/WWF videos everynight on Youtube… And now, I really like Stone Cold, The Undertaker, The Rock, Kane, Degeneration-X, Bret Hart… From Stone Cold and The Rock, you can get many nose cut lines like, “What?”, “Who in the Blue hell are you?”, “What in the Blue hell is wrong with you?”, “You bring your candy ass and I’ll bring the whoping…”, “Give me a hell yeah if ya want __________”, “I’m gonna open a six pack can of Ass whoopin’ for ya…” and lots of punch lines….
Yah for #34 Dave! Sadly, I’m southern and love wrestling. We went to watch a WWE show for our honeymoon. Hopefully, though, I’m not as redneck as these folks. I have a bit of education, don’t live in a trailer, and I have never fucked my brother…but only because he can’t catch me.
Anyone who ‘believes’ WWE is a ‘sport’ needs to have their head thoroughly examined.
You know what WWE is? It’s exactly like the queer show ‘the hills’, except grown men who do a lot of steroids ‘pretend’ to dislike each other while stripping down to undies only, instead of hormonal teenage girls. There are no steriods in WWE you say? Tell that to the surviving family of Chris Benoit.
Yeah a real sport. Entertainment? Yes. Sport? Fuck no momma.
im curious do they make a site were u can read funny/douchebaggy comments that people post cuz if so i would like to put that douchbag loser “BOZ” for his stupid lame ass comment:
Boz October 23rd, 2009 at 2:16 pm

GODDAMMIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WWE wrestling is not a sport. real wrestling is a sport. scripted wrestling is gay. working out and training is not a sport unless the outcome is judged in competition. (WWE is gay for men n’ loves little boys on weekends)
WWE is not for gay men. I myself am gay, and would not even associate myself with the “sport”, because WWE is beyond ridiculous. Even as a spectator, the type of men that get involved in WWE behave in a manner that is also unattractive, because they do not behave like men.
WTF Jeff. Pretty much the whole point of the episode was that pro wrestling is awesome and the “real” stuff is laughable. Matt Stone and Trey Parker are FANS of pro wrestling. Yeah, they made fun of it being melodramatic. Have you never seen South Park before? They make fun of things, that’s what they do.
I won’t waste a bunch of time defending pro wrestling on lamebook of all places, but I will say they’ve all but eliminated steroid use since Chris Benoit died. Their drug testing is more thorough than any of the major sport leagues these days.
Jonas, I really hope you don’t believe they truthfully got rid of all steroids. The drug testing is a joke if you’re liked by the upper manangement. Take a look at the guys on top and try to tell they are all not on the juice. You can’t. HGH also can’t be tested for. Vince McMahon said it himself, it was all done for PR. There are loopholes out the ass. Want to know who has the best drug testing? The Olympics and MMA. They are done by outside parties who don’t have a vested interest in the outcome.
First, let me say that I loved WWE in 2001-2004, it was the main thing me and my friends followed.
However I must say that I found it both ironic and funny that 90% of Professional Wrestling (in the WWE sense) is men in tights or the more common nearly naked man in a speedo, and yet I would have to say that 85% of their fanbase is men.
Here’s a couple of irrelevant things:
1- South Park is funny but kinda lame because…well it’s just lame sometimes. It comes 3rd in rank
2-Family Guy comes 2nd because even though it’s hilarious they’re racists and sexists.
3-The Simpsons are 1st because they make fun of everything but they’re not lame and they’re not racists or sexist.
4-WWE is fake and people who think otherwise are idiots. i mean come on if i got hit by a chair on my head i would be dead no matter how many steroids i take.its all about contracts and money that’s how the winner is decided.
Sorry to crush your dreams WWE lovers:D
How can people be so devoted to such a crappy TV show? Because that´s all it is, a freaking show… it´s not a sport. Saying WWE is a sport is an insult to athletes everywhere. Sure, they work out, sure they need endurance, but come on… it´s all steroids and suplements. If you think otherwise you´re a sad sad person, you think they check for drugs??? What for? It´s not competitive, people don´t win on “skills”, it´s all about who has the most fans, who has the most contracts, who brings in more money. Any MMA fighter would fucking kick the living shit out of any WWE fighter, any WWE fighter would know this. If you wanna compare WWE “fighters” to anyone, it would be rockstars, not athletes.
Wow Rodo… Only wrestling is steroids and supplements? Barry Bonds, McGuire, MMA dudes. All sports have roids. I’ve never seen such an ignorant comment since the pro palin section on huff post. Think about what you type before you actually hit submit moron
